Will Harry and Meghan attend King Charles’s coronation?
The Duke of York has some feelings of “resentment” towards his brother, the King, over a dispute related to their mother’s inheritance, it has been claimed.
King Charles was the sole beneficiary of the late Queen Elizabeth II’s £650 million estate due to a 1993 agreement – but it is understood that he has not shared it out among his siblings, Prince Andrew, Princess Anne and Prince Edward.
Meanwhile, the Duke of Sussex’s Nazi costume that he wore at the age of 20 will be recreated in the next series of The Crown, The Sun has reported.
Prince Harry donned the offensive costume for a friend’s fancy dress party, but later apologised for his actions. In his 2022 Netflix docuseries, he called wearing the uniform the “biggest mistake of my life”.
It comes after reports that the Sussexes’ children Archie and Lilibet have not yet been invited to King Charles’s coronation in May. According to The Telegraph, the children’s participation will be discussed after the couple confirm their own attendance at the royal ceremony.
A spokesperson for Harry and Meghan told The Times that they have received “email correspondence” about the coronation, but no decision has been disclosed about whether they will accept the invitation or not.
Prince Andrew in ‘despair’ that King Charles has not shared £650million inheritance

The King’s siblings Princess Anne, 72, and Prince Edward, 59, as well as Prince Andrew, 63, inherited nothing from the Queen, and are said to share “some resentment” because of this.
